e-guarantee Cancellation in FTA portal

Tally Solutions | Updated on: December 12, 2022

In our previous article 'Steps to submit e-guarantee in FTA portal', we have learnt the process to submit an e-guarantee in the FTA portal. Once an e-guarantee is submitted and approved, goods imported can be cleared at the Customs. The scenarios of import by non-registrants where an e-guarantee is required are:

  • a. Transfer of goods from one VAT designated zone to another VAT designated zone.
  • b. Import of goods into UAE under customs duty suspension.

The scenarios of UAE import where an e-guarantee is required, are typically scenarios where the importer is not liable to pay VAT on import, on satisfying certain conditions. If the conditions are satisfied, VAT is not liable on the import, whereas if the conditions are not satisfied, the e-guarantee serves as financial security for payment of the VAT due. In cases where the conditions for waiver of import VAT are satisfied, the e-guarantee submitted earlier can be cancelled.

Let us understand the steps to cancel a submitted e-guarantee in the FTA portal.
